Track Name: Move So Slow
DRIVING IN MY CAR HAS BECOME SECOND NATURE
I TAKE IT FOR GRANTED THAT I KNOW HOW TO TURN THE WHEEL
IT’S BECOME SO ROTE THAT I DON’T CONSIDER FAILURE
ACCELERATE SUBCONSCIOUSLY AND NAVIGATE BY FEEL
AND I MOVE SO SLOW
AND I DON’T KNOW WHERE THE ROAD WILL TAKE ME
OOO

PLAYING MY GUITAR HAS BECOME SECOND NATURE
I TAKE IT FOR GRANTED THAT I KNOW HOW TO MAKE THE CHORDS
YET I FIND MYSELF LOST IN A DOUBTFUL QUAGMIRE
I CAN’T REMEMBER WHAT I LEARNED THE GUTAR FOR
AND I MOVE SO SLOW
I’M AFRAID TO GO WHERE THE MUSIC TAKES ME
OOO

BEING WITH YOU HAS BECOME SECOND NATURE
I TAKE YOU FOR GRANTED AND I GET LOST IN A HOLE
I TRY TO BREAK ALL OF MY HABITS AND MY FASHION
SHAKE OFF COMPLACENCY BEFORE IT TAKES ITS TOLL
AND I MOVE SO SLOW
AND I WANT TO GO WHERE YOUR LOVE WILL TAKE ME
YEAH I WANT TO GO WHERE YOUR LOVE WILL TAKE ME
Track Name: Gas Planet
WE GOT THE JUICE
BUT THAT DON’T MEAN YOU’RE GONNA DRINK IT
I’D CALL A TRUCE
BUT YOU’LL PROBABLY STILL THINK IT
I’LL SHINE A LIGHT
INTO THAT CAVE THAT YOU’RE SPELUNKIN’
IT’LL SHINE SO BRIGHT
MAYBE YOU’LL SEE HOW WE ARE FUNKIN’

AND WE MUST SEEM LIKE ALIENS TO YOU
WITH ALL THESE CRAZY THINGS WE SAY AND DO
IT’LL TAKE MORE THAN THAT TO MAKE US GO AWAY
CUZ THIS PLANET’S A GAS AND I THINK WE’RE GONNA STAY

WE’RE SMALL AND GREEN
IT’S OUR FINEST CHARACTERISTIC
YET YOU’RE STILL MEAN
YOUR LACK OF FAITH IS SO SADISTIC
LONG AGO
YOUR DIRECTION SPAWNED WITHOUT A COMPASS
YOU DIDN’T KNOW
WE’D BE SO EARNEST IN OUR RUMPASS
Track Name: Bowling With a Genius
NEVER BEEN BOWLING WITH A GENIUS
THERE’S WORK TO BE DONE, NO TIME FOR HAVING FUN
I’M HAVING TROUBLE WITH MY LIFESTYLE
I KILL GALACTIC HERDS WITH MY CARELESS WORDS
I’M JUST AFRAID OF BEING NORMAL, I GUESS
BUT IT’S JUSTIFIED
GENIUS, CAN YOU SEE HOW I FEEL INSIDE?

HEY GENIUS, YOU SAY YOU’VE NEVER BEEN BOWLING
WELL, IT’S JUST THE THING TO GET YOUR NEW LIFE ROLLING
HEY GENIUS, DO YOU THINK IT’S REALLY HARD TO FIND A FRIEND?
DO YOU EVER WISH THAT YOU COULD START AGAIN
WHEN YOU’VE REACHED THE END?

ALWAYS BEEN RESTLESS IN THE NIGHT TIME
AND IF I’M NOT ANYMORE, WHAT AM I LIVING FOR?
I’M SUPPOSED TO HAVE THESE QUESTIONS ANSWERED
BUT SOMETIMES I DON’T KNOW, IT’S A SPIRITUAL LOW
I’M JUST AFRAID THAT THE LONGER WE LIVE
THE MORE OUR SOULS DECAY
BUT IF WE JUST WENT BOWLING, IT WOULD BE OKAY

HEY GENIUS, YOU SAY YOU’VE NEVER BEEN BOWLING
WELL, IT’S JUST THE THING TO GET YOUR NEW LIFE ROLLING
HEY GENIUS, DO YOU THINK IT’S REALLY HARD TO STAY IN LOVE?
DO YOU BELIEVE THAT THERE’S A GOD ABOVE
THAT YOU’RE FEARFUL OF?

HEY GENIUS, YOU SAY YOU’VE NEVER BEEN BOWLING
WELL, IT’S JUST THE THING TO GET YOUR NEW LIFE ROLLING
HEY GENIUS, DO YOU SEE WHAT IT IS I’M TRYING TO SAY?
SURELY YOU MUST
HEY GENIUS, YOU SAY YOU’VE NEVER BEEN BOWLING
WELL, IT’S JUST THE THING TO GET YOUR NEW LIFE ROLLING
HEY GENIUS, HOW DO I LAY MY HEART OUT ON THE LINE?
HOW DO I LIVE RIGHT NOW AND LEAVE THE PAST BEHIND?
IS THERE STILL TIME?

NEVER BEEN BOWLING WITH A GENIUS.
Track Name: Hipster Kid/Sexy Beards
HEY, I’M A HIPSTER KID, I LIVE ON THE GRID
YEAH, I KNOW WHAT’S COOL, I KNOW ALL THE RULES
OOO, YOUR JEANS ARE TOO WIDE, THERE’S STILL ROOM INSIDE
YEAH, TRY NOT TO SPEAK, YOU SOUND LIKE A GEEK

I’M A HIPSTER BOY
AND YOU WILL ENJOY
ALL THE THIINGS THAT I BLESS
WITH MY HIPSTERYNESS

HEY, I’M A GEEKY GUY, I’M NOT GONNA LIE
YEAH, I LIKE DOCTOR WHO, AND FIREFLY, TOO
OOO, I DON’T READ PITCHFORK, DOES THAT MAKE ME A DORK?
YEAH, I LIKE BEEFHEART AND ZAPPA, I THINK PAVEMENT IS CRAPPA

I’M A GEEKY GUY
I EAT TOO MANY FRENCH FRIES
I’M STARTING TO FEEL FAT
IS THERE AN APP FOR THAT?

I’M A HIPSTER BOY
AND YOU WILL ENJOY
ALL THAT I RECOMMEND
TASTE MY HIPSTER BLEND

SEXY BEARDS
Track Name: Instant Insanity
I AM YOUR HOMELAND SECURITY, I AM YOUR SECRET POLICE
I’M ONE BAD DEED AWAY FROM CRIMINAL, ONE DEGREE FROM A THIEF
I CLAIM THE WORLD FOR WAR, ALL THE WHILE PREACHING PEACE
YOU BETTER TRY AND SAVE YOURSELF, CUZ IT’S WAY TOO LATE FOR ME

I AM THE RADIO HOST, I AM THE PUNDIT, TOO
I AM THE TALKING HEAD THAT ALWAYS ANGERS YOU
I AM THE MOMENT WHEN THE MESSAGE IS REDUCED
FROM A GOSPEL OF LOVE AND GRACE TO A VITRIOLIC SPEW

NO
Track Name: Make The Midnight Hang
WE WERE ONCE THE TOAST OF OUR OWN TOWN
MAYBE IN EXHAUSTION, BUT NEVER IN DOUBT
NOW IT’S OVERRATED AND DECAYED
NO ONE HAS THE PLANS, THEY’VE BEEN MISLAID

CAN YOU SEE IT SWINGING BACK AND FORTH?
CAN YOU SEE IT SWINGING BACK AND FORTH?

ARE YOU GONNA MAKE THE MIDNIGHT HANG?
I’LL BE SITTING WAITING IN THE BACK
ARE YOU GONNA MAKE THE MIDNIGHT HANG?
WILL WE LET IT FALL INTO THE CRACKS?

MIDNIGHT HAS TO DIE TO LIVE AGAIN
I ACCEPT IT BUT I DON’T UNDERSTAND
MIDNIGHT’S MY ILLUSION AND MY TRUTH
MIDNIGHT’S MY CONNECTION TO MY YOUTH

YOU’RE INVITED TO THE PARTY, I DON’T KNOW WHEN IT STARTS
BETTER BRING SOME BAND-AIDS, THIS COULD HURT YOUR HEART
I DON’T KNOW WHY IT IS WE JUST KEEP MAKING RULES
ABOUT HOW WE’RE SUPPOSED TO LIVE
